Scientific Research Collaboration

THE NEW MEXICO CONSORTIUM

The New Mexico Consortium (NMC) is a non-profit corporation formed by three New Mexico universities in order to facilitate research in the state of New Mexico, and specifically to increase research collaborations between universities, industry and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). Science is increasingly collaborative; tackling problems at a large scale requires cross-institutional, cross-disciplinary teams. The NMC strives to increase research collaborations, support scientists, and encourage scientific start-up company development in New Mexico.
